Cattails is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ on November 29th, 2018!

 Additionally, today we're announcing what's next for Cattails on PC/Mac!

We've been working hard behind the scenes on two exciting changes to Cattails. The first, a Technical Update (v1.2), is available right now on PC and Mac. While there's not much new in the way of content, we've made a number of important structural changes that will pave the way for the future of Cattails. Here's the v1.2 patch notes:

  • 4 new colors for your cat are available at various shops
  • Overhauled the entire code base to make changes that will make Cattails run much smoother on older machines
  • Miscellaneous quality of life and balancing changes
  • A host of bug fixes, including a major one regarding random enemy cat spawning. Now enemy territory should feel a bit more dangerous!

Essentially, the biggest change in the Technical Update is that we've "unlocked" the game speed from the computer's computational cycle. What that means is that if you're running Cattails on an older machine (or if you like to place thousands of items on the floor of your den ;) ) you should find that the game runs a lot smoother. This was a fairly involved process that required us to basically go back through each and every line of code in Cattails and make a lot of alterations. Phew, glad that's over with!

Looking ahead to the future, we have a small new content patch scheduled to come out before the end of the year. We think you'll really enjoy what we have in mind! Details coming soon.

It's an exciting time to be a cat! We hope you'll join in our excitement for the Nintendo Switch release, as well as look forward to the PC/Mac updates. Until next time,

      Nice. Shared the news with several coworkers that own Switches. Hopefully they'll drop some money and buy copies.

      Wow! A console port in some form was what I was hoping for when I first backed this, so really glad to see it happening! :)
